The 20-Something Guide to Living with ADHD

January 31 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MST


EXPERT: Sharon Saline, Psy.D.

Many neurodivergent young adults who are new to living on their own may struggle initially with their newfound independence. The executive function skills required to manage issues related to work, ADHD treatment, finances, social relationships, housing, and healthcare, without immediate scaffolding from their parents, can present challenges that undermine success.

In this webinar, Dr. Sharon Saline will describe a comprehensive framework for understanding emerging adulthood. She will offer techniques for managing key aspects of independent living related to executive functioning, social, and emotional challenges. Parents will learn how to look for signs of risky behavior and when to intervene. Participants will also learn how to improve skills for better self-management, cope with the stress of ‘adulting,’ and address low self-confidence professionally and personally.

In this webinar, young adults and their caregivers will learn:

  • About the importance of treatment adherence, or, in the case of treatment cessation, how to know whether young adults are managing well
  • How caregivers can spot risky behavior when their young adult lives away
  • About techniques to support independent living and overcome challenges related to executive functioning, social, and emotional issues
  • How to handle common scenarios, including living with new roommates, managing challenges on the job, dating, and more
